Hello! My name is Stacey and I am one of Dr. Dot’s Massage assistants, aka "Dot Bot"
I have lived in Michigan most of my life, coming to the west Michigan area to attend Hope College, where I earned a degree in Dance. Now I live in the Windy City, Chicago.
After graduation, I moved to Ohio to dance professionally with a modern dance company. While working as a dancer, I suffered an injury and frequently received massage therapy to aide in my healing.
After moving back to Michigan, I attended The Kalamazoo Center for the Healing Arts and became a Massage Therapist in July of 2005. I have worked in a salon/spa and in the office of a Physical Therapist for the last 6 years, helping people who are in pain - just as I benefited from massage. In this time I have come to specialize in Deep Tissue, Swedish and Acupressure.
I love being backstage and being involved with performers and technicians, as I have an extensive background in this area. I understand the aches and pains of being on the road for extended periods of time and look forward to helping people feel more comfortable while touring!

I have been using Dr. Dots "DotBots" for years. Her girls have seen many of the artists and crew that I have TM/PM'd for. Her girls are always on time, friendly, and professional. You need to make time and room on your tour for Dr. Dot's services. By far the best in the business.” Clay Hutson Production Manager (Guns and Roses, Alice in Chains, Staind)
“Denise, Denver, Colorado DotBot was the Best Ever!” Gypsy, Tour manager of Behemoth
“"Dr. Dot really is just the best and saves me so much time hunting for (good) massage therapists for whole mornings!"” Sarah, the Wombats
“To Whom It May Concern:
I have been touring for about 22 years with many different bands (Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, Primus, etc etc...)
The masseuse I had today for The Weepies show at The State Room in SLC, Danielle, was perhaps one of the best I have ever had.
Everything from her disposition to her skills. My entire band and crew adored her.
I felt it was important to tell how amazing this woman was, and how she brightened our day.

Very on point and definitely made for an amazing show at night - thank you again!
